1349371162Robert Milliken and David McHone of Surterre Properties® recently celebrated an impressive accomplishment: the sale of a stunning custom estate overlooking the water and offering 45-feet of coveted frontage.

Designed by Bill Clark — Walt Disney’s personal architect — the property located at 1408 East Balboa Boulevard was sold for $8,383,000. One of the coastal area’s finest waterfront homes, the residence offers an array of luxurious amenities, including a dumbwaiter, a five-car garage spacious enough to accommodate a limousine, and a personal dock with space for a 65-foot yacht plus two smaller boats. Gorgeous materials and finishes, such as marble and mahogany, are seen throughout the home and create an interior aesthetic on par with the breathtaking views the residence showcases.

When it comes to the sale and purchase of property at the luxury level, Robert Milliken is one of the area’s foremost experts, offering clients nearly four decades of experience. Named “REALTOR® of the Year” in 2004, he’s as respected by his peers as he is by his clients — and that’s due in large part to the integrity and discretion with which he conducts his business.

1349371183“Success in the luxury marketplace is dependent on many factors — experience negotiating high-end deals is key,” he remarked. “However, where I set myself apart from others lies in my experience with highly discerning clients in the position to buy and sell these coveted homes. I understand their concerns and work hard to earn and keep their trust. Most importantly, I work hard to bring their dreams to fruition.”

A lifelong resident of Newport Beach, David McHone offers clients an insider’s perspective on the area that’s difficult to top. Just as importantly, he offers an unmatched level of firsthand expertise when it comes to the sale and purchase of property—an avid investor, he’s got a personal portfolio that currently includes upwards of 40 properties which he personally manages benefiting the client with his marketplace realism.

He offers his clients a very high level of expertise when it comes to the location, sale and purchase of property as well as his extensive list of contacts and prospective buyers. What’s more, as a contractor who builds luxury properties of all types, he has a keen insight on the construction process. With such a dynamic and valuable skill set, plus a genuine passion for passing his knowledge along to the buyers and sellers he represents, it’s no wonder he’s made a name for himself as one of the most trustworthy real estate professionals in Orange County’s luxury market.

Along with invaluable experience with regard to the luxury client and the local marketplace, Robert and David have the support of Surterre Properties on their side — a boon to clients hoping to experience the greatest possible value in their real estate endeavors. Since its inception, Surterre has customized its efforts and strategy to suit the needs of the luxury market: in addition to an award-winning in-house advertising studio that ensures the best possible property exposure, the organization encourages a unique and highly effective teamwork approach.
